Enter Dashboard, Expose, or Spaces Temporarily

Hold down F9, F10, F11, or F12 (or whatever you've set for the Expose and Spaces keyboard shortcuts) for a few seconds, and then release the key to enter and leave the appropriate mode without having to press the key again. This is particularly useful for Dashboard, in which you can check the contents of a widget and then return to your work with only a single key press.

GoLive Update Offers Speed & Bug Fixes

GoLive Update Offers Speed & Bug Fixes -- Adobe has released an update to GoLive 4.0, adding performance improvements and bug fixes to the powerful Web creation tool. GoLive 4.0.1, in addition to feeling speedier overall, fixes crashes caused by a font corruption problem with Mac OS 8.6 (see "Font Manager Update 1.0" in TidBITS-491) and fixes a crash associated with using GoLive's PDF module, among several other repairs. If you've previously run Apple's Font Manager Update on your copy of GoLive 4.0, we recommend reinstalling a fresh copy of GoLive before applying the 4.0.1 update to prevent crashing the updater. The 4.0.1 update is a hefty 10 MB download and is free for registered owners of GoLive 4.0. [JLC]
